I don't know if you have seen that commercial on TV, I think it is for a cold remedy, mommy's don't take a day off. I love that commercial. We'll yesterday I had no choice and took the day off.
Woke up in the morning to a terrible headache and dizzy. Didn't know why, but I just needed to lay back down. When Lauren woke up, she saw that I was laying down in my jammie's still, knew something was up. Told her," don't feel right, I need to lay down". She knew if I need to lay down, then something is wrong.
So I slept Thursday night till Friday morning. Then went back to bed around 10a.m. till 2p.m. Made some soup then went back to bed and slept until this morning at 7a.m. I took a mommy's day off. Today I am laying on the couch still not feeling my old self. Slight cough and still heavy in the head.
Taking a mommy's day off does have it's consequences. Normal mommy duties don't get done. The world falls apart in the house. That's how my husband puts it. God forbid, mommy's take a day off. When i refer to myself as a mommy, it to my little 4 legged baby, Kopper our Shiba Inu. I felt guilty for taking a day off. But I need to remember, we all need to take time for ourselves, and that's what I did. I have a lot on my plate lately, and I am thinking just wore myself out, plus picked up something along the way. I keep our house as clean and germ free as I can since Lauren had her heart transplant. Lysol everything every morning, that's normal for me. But now and then a pesky germ will find it's way in.
Next weekend is a biggie. Lauren and I are flying to Miami for the Miami International Book Fair. We leave Frinday and come back home Monday. Friday is going to be my busy day at the fair. They have me set up to do a book signing and then they are doing a video interview with me. Saturday I will be attending an Authors workshop, which will be very interesting.
